I’ve been lifting for over two years and have recently hit a wall. I have been stuck around 150-155 pounds for over two months and haven’t been able to gain weight. I’m looking to gain another 15-20 pounds. If anybody has some advice to better my eating habits a little it would be very appreciated.
I weight train 4-5 times a week.
Here’s a little bit of diet background information.
Weight = 115 Pounds
Body Fat = 3-4 %
Height = 5’9"
Weight= 152 Pounds
Body Fat = 5%
I have an extremely fast metabolism. So I haven’t worried too much about eating unhealthy foods.
My normal eating habits are.
Morning: Protein shake+8 oz milk, recently added a sausage+egg biscuit
Afternoon Lunch: Usually a Terrayki Bowl or a Philly Cheese Steak
Afternoon Snack: Protein Bar
Late Day Dinner(after workout): Usually something with a lot of calories, 2 burgers from McDonalds or Wendys or something.
Night Time Snack: Usually a well balanced meal, chicken + rice and vegetables
Before Bed Meal: Protein shake + 8 oz milk
I usually drink with friends 3-4 times a week, and I’m cutting down to 1 time since reading some articles on T-Nation about alcohol consumption. One thing i’ve wondered about is the fact that I don’t eat a lot of fruits and vegetables. From my understanding though, most people who eat these foods are using them as healthy carb substitutes to pastas or bread.
Since I don’t have to worry about getting fat I haven’t really eaten a lot of fruits or vegetables. Is this an ignorant mistake? Any input would be appreciated.
